    review is from: Coby Kyros 8-Inch Android 2.3 4 GB Internet Touchscreen Tablet – MID8125-4G (Personal Computers)

    I have my tablet for about 2 weeks, and I have installed the Android Market, Amazon Marketplace, etc. without rooting. (See instructions for 7022-model). This tablet works great! I use for light web surfing, watching Netflix and you tube, and reading books. I will read everything and I have a few questions, the app is not associated with the Coby realated. For example, the Kindle app does not allow you to change the default dictionary for your foreign-language books. The Aldiko app nor the Kindle app let me search my dictionaries good at all.
    The WiFi worked well, and I had it going in less than 5 min. I get a good signal in my house as well.
    The tablet really works now is that I get to be able to apps from the market. I have good a 16gig card in mine, where I save everything, and it keeps running pretty. I once reset and wakes in standby mode over and over. This brings me to the negative: The battery life is horrible! I read a lot about it and I only get about 4 hours. Battery life. I have even downloaded “no cell” App, which was nothing to improve on the battery. Other than that it works well enough for my needs. I am about my two children one to all the classics that we think read together. (I homeschool) This would certainly reduce the cost of buying paper books.
    tech support says you can use the tablet while it is plugged in, and that was a lifesaver for me!

    All in all, I’d have no problems with this device. I would call it. For those who have not to recommend it for something really challenging job It’s nice to read books, surf the web in bed, or watch an episode of Monk while! On my sofa
    *** UPDATE ***

    Ok, now I have this tablet for well over a month, and I really wish I could send it back to
    two major drawbacks . The WiFi connected
    not remain for very long at all! I’ve done everything I can think of. I’m even in the same room with him, and then I try to cut it back and there is an “error” appears. So I need to start the new tablet to the wifi connection again to restart! That’s why I’m amending my review! This issue alone is enough to be a deal breaker for most. To pay attention to the same with the problem. It will make you want to throw this thing through the wall!
    battery life is worse than I could imagine. I get maybe 3 hours at most reading or surfing the net, playing a game. You can not see a whole neflix movie without plugging in. I’m very disappointed in this unit’s battery. I could deal with the wifi issue of whether the battery was better. I will try to sell this one and a better tablet in the future. I like to read, and I am very frustrated that this thing
    not for a long time reading even with wifi off, etc. So in conclusion, I do not have a problem with the screen or something, but these two issues have called my attention to the fact that you really do get what you pay for. I hope that you take enough information to make a decision. My advice is to save a little more money and a better device.

    This review is from: Coby Kyros 8-Inch Android 2.3 4 GB Internet Touchscreen Tablet – MID8125-4G (Personal Computers)

    The Kyros 8-inch Tablet with Android 2.3.4 is exactly that. the purchase of this, one can not expect that the same functions as a Motorola Xoom or Apple iPad. If you want this functionality, then you should spend a few hundred dollars more for one of them .
    However, if you are looking for a cost effective alternative that will allow you, by going to the Web is search, check email, and do other lightwieght computing, then this is a great little tablet for it. It has enough processing power and RAM to meet these challenges, and not so, while remaining convenient than a netbook the same specifications. as Android is, it’s very familiar, already accustomed to the OS. The resistive screen, while not capable of multi-touch it with a pen.
    Speaking is the screen, this may be its biggest drawback. While the screen is usually clear, it is not as crisp as more expensive units. Moreover, the sensitivity is not as good as a higher quality capacitive screen. However, the device also costs $ 185, compared to devices with better screens for $ 300 plus. For me this was a fair trade-off. As is the low resolution of the front-facing camera. While it does not take prime pics, will it work for video chats.
    For apps, the device comes pre-loaded with “Appslib” market, and I could not load it on Amazon App Market very easily, as well. While it is not nearly so many apps for tablets in the Android ecosystem, there are a lot of compatible applications to choose from.
    Finally, you do not get a cool logo or extensive ecosystem with this tablet. Instead, you get a modest price and the ability to routine Web tasks . to do from a convenient platform, if everything is OK with not “super” with 3G compatibility or the “coolness” of a tablet, then this is a good choice

    This review ( What is it )
    This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus 16GB (Dual Core, Universal Remote, WiFi) (Personal Computers)

    After reading a few theoretical reviews, I thought, I was a very early review of a whole day with my Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus (which I’ve updated a few times) based post. I have rated a total of 4 *, 5 * for the Tab and 3 *. for a premium price There are certainly less expensive tablets, but I think that’s got a really class-leading features. Its up to you whether you think the features justify the price or whether to wait for the next better faster cheaper version
    . Not much to say about the design, it’s a record, but the build quality is excellent and it feels very solid. I bought this specifically because it’s a 7 “form factor, and I wanted portable and pocketable, this delivers. I’ve posted a picture of what’s in the box, it’s just the tablet, charger and cable [see photo on the product page]. not plan on learning much from the “manual”, a small book is. One thing I can not say whether it has Gorilla Glass like the original Tab I hope so, but Samsung does not say much as Amazon shipped before the release – heck, Samsung will not even let me register it still image quality, brightness and resolution is excellent although I did wind to disable auto brightness as I thought it kept things a little dark just .. determined by the manual adjustment of brightness to about 60%. The auto setting was probably the battery life, which seems excellent save. Charged to 100% this morning, and after a day of light use (web browsing, wifi all day, listening to an hour of music, loaded dozen apps, 15 minutes navigation) I still have 51% of the after one day use. [11/6] I’m still happy with battery life, but I will say watching Netflix looks like it only last about 4-5 hours.
    Honeycomb with this tablet is very appealing, and I did not find Touch Wiz intrusive. Actually, everything works pretty simple, as you would hope. GPS and Google Maps worked great, Sat lock got in a few minutes sitting in the passenger seat of the car. Local driving, but Google Maps cached enough that nav worked great. [11/6] In response to several comments, the GPS works without wifi. Google Maps caches some local coverage, and there are standalone nav apps that have broader coverage. If traffic updates are important, you will not get it without wifi.
    tried the camera, it’s point-and-shoot cellphone quality but nothing approaching even my Lumix camera let alone a DSLR. [11/12] But applications such as barcode scanners and Skype make good use of the cameras. The touch screen is very responsive, and Netflix and Youtube looked great on my home wifi. No problems with the apps I downloaded, they all ran and looked great. [11/12] The 1.5.14 Pandora update fixes my previous UI complaint, so Pandora now looks as good as it sounds. When do you want to buy this for work with a clear conscience, I could also setup the built-in VPN client and a free RDP application (PocketCloud) from the Android Market download our Windows Server to access just fine. [11/12] The Peel Smart Remote folks never answered their email support form (why bother to have it if you do not respond?), But their 1.2.6 update has basic support for my Time Warner / Motorola DVR deliver, so I have now had the opportunity to board Remote The personalized program guide is nice and I could actually use it, but the remote functions supported are pretty basic so I’ll still use use my Logitech Harmony – .. maybe they’ll create an app!
    If you are looking for a smaller tablet with all the bells and whistles, I think you would like with this one.

    This review ( What is it )
    review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus 16GB (Dual Core, Universal Remote, WiFi) (Personal Computers)

    EDIT: Now the product is tested more in more depth. My first test is still standing. I’ve edited the post, include more content about properties. Thanks
    First off, let me say that this product is now being tested for two days. If
    something changes my opinion of it I will be glad to update this review.
    Whenever this package I must admit that I was filled with anticipation and some level of concern. This tablet will be used both for sports and commercial purposes, so it was able to do a variety of things. At first glance, I must say it is a real beauty. It has a smooth and stylish design in a position to impress almost everyone. Mine was charged to approximately 68%, if I get it, so I could turn it on and was immediately started. It took me about 10 minutes to get it started and linked to my Google Account. Here came my first surprise. Already with an android phone, it then went to my saved contacts and applications that were downloading my own cell phone. This saved me a lot of time and a big plus
    was short I would like to list features of the Tablet and give a quick run down.
    SCREEN –
    Very bright and clear. This screen is impressive to say the least. It comes auto set to change the lighting itself, but you can turn off that and the brightness to whatever level you choose
    TOUCHSCREEN -.
    Aside from being bright it is also very responsive to touch. For this part of the exam, I went to my father. My father has larger fingers and usually has problems with small buttons or touch screens. He was amazed at how easy it be impressed and not make mistakes on the device
    CAMERA -.
    This is a remarkable camera. I was able to pull some decent shots with it and saw no real problems
    Edit: tested the video chat feature and had no problems, it is a fairly clear picture
    BLUETOOTH – ..
    no problems. . It connected to my phone and I could even tether internet to the tablet
    GPS –
    Now first I was concerned GPS applications for download. But after a few times with him I decided I rather like it. Here are three reasons why!
    1) I bought a tablet not a GPS!
    2) There are various apps available on the market, be to enable offline gps support.
    3) You can start the navigation, while the WiFi is connected, and it is all information that load for a route and then it works perfectly. I even managed to get it to render. Route by turning the wrong way to reprogram if All in all, it’s just an added feature that is fun and can, if you pre-program useful at home.
    Samsung TouchWiz
    Samsung has a beautiful skin that made superimposed natural Android design. I found it both user-friendly and more fun to play. She took nothing away from the tablet, but a few features that are worth it, made
    GAMES –
    course I tried a couple of games like Angry Birds and others. This tablet played them with no problem and they looked even better than ever with a clear crisp image
    MEDIA CENTER -.
    I took. seen time tv (Netflix) and listen to music (Pandora) Both were clear and crisp in sound quality making the tablet good to use standalone. However, Samsung also offers ear plugs if you do not want to hear the whole space, what you see
    PEEL – Edit
    : After being in the tv remote on an old model I tested could not get a clear picture features offer. Now I have fully tested these functions and I’m impressed. The Peel remote control offers an easy to use interface, change the channel, volume, or access menu. . Just wonderful
    battery life –
    Honestly, I can not say much about the battery life of the product. I charged it once and have it made and
    all day with little battery drainage Edit:. Test and can now say that there is a charge held over a day with constant off and on usage. It only showed a serious drop in life after I. Netflix about 45 minutes to full brightness All in all,
    Samsung Galaxy Tablet 7.0 plus is an ideal tablet for anyone wanting to jump into the tablet market. I would like to make this purchase again.

    This review ( What is it )
    This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus 16GB (Dual Core, Universal Remote, WiFi) (Personal Computers)

    UPDATED – 12/31/11
    In a never ending quest for the perfect tablet, now I have my 7.0 Plus (now for sale here) with a Galaxy Tab 8.9, which I got replaced for $ 399 at BustBuy. The 8.9 is slim and much lighter than the full size tablets but still large enough to be able to enter on the virtual keyboard with both hands. Moreover, the incredible screen resolution to 1280 X 800 vs. 1024 X 600 for the better 7 “tablets.
    EXPERIENCE WITH TABLETS (pre-8.9) I
    tablets mainly for browsing and reading blogs. (I had a smart phone for GPS and camera and laptop for all use requires a lot of typing.) This was my third tablet starting with the original iPad which I kept for only a week because it was too heavy to hold and kill my neck and shoulders hunched over when. on my lap (I know that my ergonomic problems do not apply to everyone.) Then I have the 7 “Archos. 70 Internet Tablet which was extremely light at about 11 oz, although with limited resolution (800 X 480) and not much horsepower
    samsug 7.0 PLUS VS OTHER NEW 7 “Tablets
    The Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus weighs 12.2 oz (much slimmer and lighter than the original Tab). The Kindle Fire is heavier at 14.6 oz and lacks other features such as GPS and camera. The Iconia A100 is also much too heavy (at over a pound) and supposedly has display viewing issues. Although the Kindle Fire price is half ($ 199 vs. $ 399), the fire is in its first generation, the specs are not as good, it lacks important features as previously mentioned, and from what I say from the reviews , also has a UI overlay that ties you have to the Amazon system (which some might like). You get what you pay for, although I heard that Amazon subsidizes the Fire in the amount of $ 50 and does not have income. It is said to have supported a super fast browser due to its Amazon Cloud Services. The premium 7 “tablets are all at about $ 330-400 and the price is worth it.

    CASE AND HANDLING For a case for the 7.0 Plus, I got the Navitech Black Bycast Leather Flip Open Book Style Carry Case (make sure that you are the one for the 7.0 Plus). The case is also very light and I use it in landscape mode with the cover hanging down to the unit holds up to support ( they had) on each side, while my elbows on the bed or couch rest when lying down (for long term use). Some have the Galaxy Tab as simple plates in terms of aesthetics, I (like they criticized), but the build quality is excellent and it does not really matter if you have it in a case.

    OS AND USER INTERFACE As for Honeycomb 3.2 and TouchWiz (the latter being unique to Samsung) has not yet been decided. The Home, Back and Settings icons and access have been rearranged, and I’m not sure if I prefer the new way. (After a few weeks, I like the Honeycomb changes. The new settings access control is much handier. The TouchWiz overlay extras are nifty and .. tried not in the way I do not have the camera or universal remote yet battery life seems good so far
    7.7.? The Next Best Thing
    If you wait and spend a lot more money (I did not) want is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 on the way. Although larger, it is actually a little lighter (11.86 oz) and thinner (I think because it is the universal remote transmitter, not sure missing ), and has a Super AMOLED higher resolution (1280 x 800). My Samsung Infuse 4G has. the Super AMOLED display and it is really something, and definitely better than the 7.0 Plus screen, nice as it is No word yet on pricing or availability, although I think I saw a guess of $ 599-699. This will be their super premium tablet.
    ERGONOMICS tablets
    As you can see, am I obsessed with ergonomics as I have some old injuries to back and shoulder. I am afraid that the larger tablets are proving to go around, ergonomic disasters for long term use for many people (not all) because of the need to either hunch over or reach with your arms and hands depending on how they are positioned must And you certainly can not sit for very long shown with his feet on a table as in the iPad ads

    I have this now tablet for almost 3 months used. I am not a journalist or evaluator of electronic devices (borrowed for short periods). I’m just a normal user who uses it every day for me. I have no other tablet but have a colleague uses an iPad, with which I can compare. CONCLUSION

    After a month of use, I found myself loving it. After two moths, I was love it even more. And after almost 3 months, I can not live without. I highly recommend it for all.
    WHY NOT Apple’s iPad

    I’m an Apple fan. I am a Mac user for the past 20 years. I bought at least 4 iPods in the past. And I currently use iPhone. I certainly like iPad when my colleague showed me a.
    Then why do not I buy Apple’s tablet (iPad)? That’s because I’m an iPhone user! More and more I learned about iPad, I realized that it was a “big iPhone without the phone” is. I have. Already most features of iPad in my iPhone
    In other words, if I buy an iPad, I gain little while paying twice for the same things. But when I buy an Android tablet, my selection of functions and apps will be doubled, as I do. Gain access to the Android Market next to Apple’s App Store
    This was one of the main reasons why I chose Sony Tablet over Apple’s iPad.
    How do I use it I
    use Sony Tablet both at home and at work, every day.
    At work, I use it for email, web browsing, scheduling and notes.
    at home, in what I do. to do at work, I use it as an e-reader (Kindle), see video / movie I use it as a universal controller for everything in the living room (TV, Cable, BD / DVD player, AV receiver). I also sometimes music (Music Unlimited) in bed listening.
    On weekends I take it with me when going out. I use it to take pictures and videos. I use it as an e-reader (Kindle) at cafeteria while listening to music (Music Unlimited). My wife used to watch movies in the car when we go for a long ride.
    I swear during the night and I do not carry power cable at all during the day, because I have a lot of juice left at the end of the day.
    What I like
    A. Superb Design – .. Beautifully curved design with a wedge shaped body is a winner
    I found that its physical design is not only beautiful, but much more useful
    (1) When holding it in your hand, it feels lighter than flat type, because the center of gravity closer to your holding hand.
    (This is also true when holding it horizontally with both hands, holding the upper half of the device. And it feels secure because the wedge shape on upper side works as a slip-stopper.)

    (2) It is much easier and safer to wear it to room to room without fear of dropping it because the wedge shaped side works as a slip-stopper between your fingers that hold it.
    (3) The screen is easier to see with less glare, and its virtual keyboard to type when placed on the desk because the wedge gives a comfortable height on the top. You do not need a special carrier case to do that like all other flat tablets.
    (4) This is the only tablet that is placed gently on the desk and pick up easily, without fear of falling is because the wedge shape with hollowed sides gives you a convenient handle, to keep it safe.
    Sony is the first company that is thinner is not necessarily better realized. Thinner and flatter the device, the more difficult it gently put it on a hard surface of the desk, as drag your fingers on the sides but underneath, and you have your finger from the bottom at some point. And thinner and flatter the device, the harder it is to get. (Just think about picking up an unbending flat thin plastic plate from a desk!)
    (5) It is just beautiful to look at are two, if kept in the hand and on the desktop (you do not need ugly case top) to raise.
    B. Lightweight – use of special plastics make this tablet light and strong
    (1) This tablet is lightest among all tablets in its class .. It is essential for the mobile device to be light. Lighter the better;. Therefore, it is the best in its class in this respect
    (2) Sony achieves this lightness by using plastics. However, not all plastics are made equal. Sony strengthens its devices with a sturdy special plastics (as opposed to those used in Samsung beep). In other words, it is made of high quality plastic, which is strong, very strong.
    C. Large storage capacity (external SD card and USB drive)
    (1) I bought one with 32GB. I also bought a 32GB external SD card. Together, my Sony Tablet 64GB at all times. That’s plenty for most videos and movies and other data. (Compare with Kindle Fire which has only 8GB)
    (2) In addition
    , with a USB port ($ 17), I can connect to my 500GB USB pocket drive if I need. (IPad. .. Read more

    This review is from: Sony SGPT111US / S Wi-Fi Tablet (16GB) (Personal Computers)

    First, a disclaimer: This is not a complete review. It is based on less than one hour hands-on experience. I shop.
    short, I am very positively impressed by Sony S1 and think it’s one of the best, if not made the best Android tablet yet. My other favorite Android tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. I would not regret it, either have them, but I now prefer Sony S1 for its unique hand holding ergonomics (see detailed discussions below).
    runtime comparison among the top tablets including iPad 2, Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and this one (Sony S1) I feel we consumers are really spoiled. These products are all so good for what they are. It is like comparing different flavors of ice cream, and you could end up eating all of them want. But still, the Sony S1 draw somehow by some significantly unique properties managed.
    On the other hand, even the best iPads and Android tablets do not replace my Windows-based laptop computer. How many, I do on my computer to work. In fact, I can not work without my computer. Much as I like the convenience of the current tablets none of them comes even close to me. The whole spectrum of business software applications and ecosystem This is not a complaint against a computer that costs less than $ 500. It’s just a statement of reality
    To call a few of PC software and system tools that lack a reasonable substitute on either iOS or Android: (1). Sophisticated file system management (local, LAN and cloud), (2) the Office system (beyond Word, including PowerPoint, Excel), (3) NaturallySpeaking Pro (business-grade full-text speech recognition), (4) imaging and other multimedia creation and editing programs (such as Photoshop), (5) OneNote, (6) Microsoft unmatched handwriting recognition (7) Visio (vector drawing software) and (8) CRM, QuickBooks, business databases and other professional software. For me, a computer for work on almost all of these skills. I am eligible for the Windows 8 tablet to wait for my laptop for this purpose replace (see bottom of this review).
    But this review is not a fight between Windows and iOS / Android (which are frankly entirely different leagues serving different purposes). It’s just a few thoughts from a happy consumer with regard to a good product. The following

    , I will list and comment on some important aspects of the Sony S1, starting with those who are pushing to distinguish Sony S1 from the most, and the ones that I personally think are important.
    1 DESIGN & ERGONOMICS:
    Of the numerous tablets I have handled, Sony S1 feels the best hands, much better than both iPad 2 and Samsung Galaxy 10.1 and other tablets for that matter. This is mainly because of its asymmetric shape. I would not be surprised that a large number of people feel the same way.
    But I think it is something more than just a feeling. In my particular case, there is a very significant practical benefit in fact a health benefit. Based on years of use of Windows-based convertible tablet computers (yes they do exist, and not with the pills we are talking here confused about), the skin got from my fingers, a slowly burning state, which is very sensitive to heat (I suspect It is the radiation related, but I do not know exactly). Sony S1 gives me a cool handle to hold it, and I know immediately that it is healthier to not only greater comfort. I would buy Sony S1 for this reason alone. I can not speak for others, however.
    Moreover, the way Sony has developed this tablet Beems with quality and even pride. Once you have seen and held a Sony S1, a rare glimmer of hope arises: finally a tablet that is not only trying to emulate the iPads. I hate not iPads. I want to break only some freedom away from the “Apple Way” and good choices other than to see Apple products. So a tablet like Sony S1 gives me a bit more satisfaction with the exception of just a good product. Call me biased. But I am entitled to my opinion.
    2 Unique features:
    Although the Sony S1 tablet is based on Android Honeycomb, Sony introduced a few unique features. The first interesting is that the tablet works as a universal remote not only to Sony TVs but also electronics of other brands. I have not yet tried it, but in theory., If they have that built-in infrared sensor, it could work as a truly powerful universal control with good software implementation
    Another feature is that the Sony S1 has DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance). for streaming content directly to a DLNA-enabled TV In the light of that newer TVs and many other home electronics are increasingly “DLNA Certified” as a matter of standard now, this is a good thing. In addition, Sony is pitching

    This review ( What is it )
    This review is from: Sony SGPT111US / S Wi-Fi Tablet (16GB) (Personal Computers)

    UPDATE
    After nearly five months of use with the latest Sony Firmware update (mid-December) and after extensive tests were all battery drain disappeared problems. it is now on par to if not better, cargo hold in standby mode than any other tablet besides the iPad. Also I have the Wi- Fi connection problem solved, but had to upgrade my cable hispeed internet now pay about $ 60.00 per month. Sony Tablet S-ID do not play with my former speeds, albeit 3-4 MBPS is beautiful not just slow. Now that I have almost doubled or tripled, I get no dropped wifi connections after 2 minutes. I must say that my reason for switching to a more expensive internet plan from my friend two teenage boys, a voracious online gaming habits of the course (not all of them now?) Otherwise I would not have updated was affected. mention I have to say this is more a recent development, and my previous tests of the WiFi connection was done sans teenagers. This is why I can only give it 4 stars. I am very disappointed that there was not more integration with the Playstaion Store and more games. I’m also disappointed in the limited usefulness of the SD card. Whatever file browser is used IDS to load a pain in the back and transfer movies, to free up space in main tablet storage. Also, no matter what, finding movies is a problem because the ones stored on the SD card does not show in Sony’s video application purchased along with other videos from Sony Video Unlimited. I have a file viewer, the video files on the SD card and tablet show at a glance, from which one can also seamlessly play all files and all other features of the regular player, that most others find Tablet detection and shows the name of the movie, which I set up for my ripped files on the desktop. transferring video files to the SD card may not be to transfer me and then delete the original file from the tablet. transfer should only mean that, do not copy instead. Therefore I update my review 3.5 star rating (if I could give half stars), as these problems persist, though br improvements such as battery life UPDATE AFTER 1 MONTH OF USE
    . (PREVIOUS POSITIVE BATTERY LIFE COMMENTS FROM initial review NOT HELD UP)
    Due to the heavy battery discharge when on standby, I have stopped this device for the time . I’ll wait until a software update comes to solve this problem, and comes up to the official thin casing of Sony. This way I do not have to remove the tablet from a pouch and not worry that the battery up to 20% after 8 hours of standby and with only 4 hours of use (reading, browsing and playing Fish Tycoon). My new Galaxy Tab 8.9 has a M-Edge case that does this and gives me 60% battery life at the end of the day (at the same bet) instead of just 20%-big difference. I love the weight and feel of the Sony, but can not use justified because the battery drain problem. My initial review of battery life was good, but installing the exact same apps have deteriorated significantly as on my other test tablets, the battery life and drain. It’s definitely something specific to the Sony Tablet / software.
    I am also somewhat pessimistic now, since Sony has shipping on the case delayed 6 times in 6 weeks. Also, as of right now there is no news about a software update version. This is quite understandable, but because the tablet still within 60 days after initial release. I definitely would not recommend this tablet to anyone who would not be out and about when you turn it off completely each time. This is annoying, since the Sony is not the fastest tablet to boot. Oh and another annoying thing is that each video you will skip to the tab and stutters transmitted when screen orientation is changed. If you’re at it, use it to surf the web and read ebooks-and are willing to take the tablet close to all the way down after each use, then this is the best tablet. IMHO if you can wait a few months to see how Sony handles these issues with a software update, then go ahead. Sony has the potential to be the best tablet period (unless you with hundreds of thousands of useless apps like to organize no decent way or close, no widgets, no true multitasking and in its own ecosystem, converting movies makes a nightmare bound. if impractical) with lousy music and video quality
    UPDATE AFTER 2 weeks worth of USE.
    I have covered unfortunately my review with 3 out of 5 stars This is not just because the Video Unlimited or Music Unlimited apps not ready or properly-the Sony is new and that expected. will The problem that I see, do I and other colleagues, is severe battery drain when left on standby.About 3% drain per hour. This is unacceptable if it is not in use., it should not Read more
